Morgan Jones Pett’s expert personal injury lawyers handled this unusual case involving a client who was a passenger in her boyfriend’s car which was involved in an accident with a tractor. It was unusual because the tractor driver deliberately drove his tractor into their vehicle. The tractor driver then jumped out, remonstrated with our client’s boyfriend and then assaulted him. The tractor driver was convicted of not only ‘Driving Without Due Care and Attention’ but also ‘Assault’ and ‘Threatening Behaviour’.
It was a terrifying experience for our client, but fortunately she made almost a full recovery from whiplash type symptoms and we were able to recover over £6,000 compensation for her.
